JUPS 409 - CBLEnvironmental Peacebuilding
In a globalized and networked world, the linkages between social and environmental issues are becoming increasingly evident. From climate change and sustainability to resources and economics, scholars and practitioners alike have been bridging the divide between society and ecology. This connection has yielded an emerging perspective suggesting that environmental issues need not primarily be a source of conflict, but rather can offer a basis for promoting peace and social justice. Environmental peacebuilding is at the forefront of this transition, constituting both the ecological realm of peace and the peacemaking potential of ecology. Through various theoretical lenses, immersion experiences, and real-time case studies, we will explore this integrative paradigm in terms of its history, its present relevance in concrete settings, and its prospects for transforming the future. [Note: this course will have a community-based learning (CBL) component that connects the classwork with service-learning opportunities in the area.]
